Hi, I’m Carolina.

I’ve always had a love of reading and writing, and in high school and college, I realized that editing was a perfect combination of those interests. Since then, I’ve been editing anything I can get my hands on: books, blog posts, content marketing, lit mags, magazines, and more.

Now, as a freelance editor, I work with indie authors to polish their manuscripts—novels, memoirs, poetry collections, essays, short stories, or business nonfiction—for self-publication or submissions in the traditional publishing world.

I completed the University of Chicago’s editing certificate program and graduated with a BA in English and history from Concordia University, Nebraska. I am a member of ACES: The Society for Editing, Editorial Freelancers Association, and St. Louis Publishers Association. I’m the publisher and editor in chief of Capsule Stories, a print literary magazine published every season.

I write, sometimes. My writing has appeared in FIVE:2:ONE’s #thesideshow, Moonchild Magazine, HerStry, and Déraciné Magazine. My short story was nominated by Dream Pop Journal for the 2018 Best of the Net. My experience as a writer informs the approach I take as an editor, and my goal is to be the type of editor I’d want to work with as a writer.
